2012 seems to have flown by… which is kinda apt really, considering fly was my word of the year. This one little word has served me well and I’m reluctant to let go of it. Perhaps that’s why I’ve faffed around choosing my new word for 2013.

Last year was all about learning to fly… taking off with new ventures and discovering what really inspires me creatively.

The chance to fly literally across the world and do what I love.

Opportunities to learn and be inspired.

Setting intentions and making them happen.

Celebrating those I know, and reaffirming the images that move me.

It was time to fly from our old home, let go of a lot of stuff and emotion and make a new nest. We’ve flown right into storms and out the other side.

It’s been a journey of ups & downs, laughs and tears…

All the while, my wings kept me flying or hovering just above where I needed to be.

It was a year to remember for sure…

We did it together… all my boys and me. Thank goodness these guys are with me on my journey… it just wouldn’t be the same without them.

As we step into 2013 today… 12 images that will forever remind me of us there in 2012.
